I found a recipe for low calorie pumpkin muffins but the recipe called for Splenda. Living abroad I can't get splenda but I still like to make low calorie desserts. I've used plain sugar but have added the oat bran and applesauce and cut down on the milk from the original recipe to make these yummy low calorie muffins. If yiu want them a little sweetwe you can use 2/3 cup sugar and gain a few more calories or if you want them less sweet, 1/3 cup sugar is fine as well. I have cooked them each way and my personal preference is a 1/2 cup sugar.Submitted by MLUCE920
I've been trying to stay away from white four (all-purpose) so I bought a bag of whole wheat flour. In search of a whole wheat recipe I came across this recipe http://www.recipezaar.com/recipe/Whole-Wheat-Honey-Banana-Muffins-115432 and thought it would be perfect. I decided to take this recipe to the next level of health by replacing the oil with applesauce, it worked! These are fluffy and moist and just yummy. For fun I sprinkled some with oats and honey. I recommend sprinkling them with honey because it makes the tops kind of gooey and delicious, but only a drizzle or else it will be really doughy on top.
I used mini muffin tins and made about 65 muffins. But towards the end I just got impatient and filled up three regular sized muffin cups.
I think these are the perfect way to get in some complex carbs and fiber and the wheat germ gives it a great extra health kick!Submitted by APALOMINO
